We left San Diego on Sunday the 3rd at 4pm. I had come back from doing the wash when Jay looked up at Don and me and said, "I think we should have a meeting." He had been checking the weather and had all the waypoints charted out and said, "I think we should leave today."
After he gave us his reasons (mostly weather related and a little bit we are all dressed up and ready to go), he asked us, "What do you think?"
Okay with us, Don and I agreed.
It was a pitch black night, but beautiful. We never really got the wind we had hoped for but the seas we're calm and mostly following and we had no complaints.
Late in the night, our engine started sounding different, kind of hiccuping. It turns out we are having transmission issues. No worries. We arrived safely and now are planning to stay an extra week in Ensenada.
We found great fish tacos today, are relaxing tomorrow at the pool and are wine tasting in the Guadalupe Valley, Thursday, with our new friends from Canada.
And regarding our engine issues, we have adopted Jay's daughter's saying, "It will probably be fine."
But wait! There is more. After an all night sail we "danced" with the immigration officials. Quite a story to come soon. Just need a few days to assimilate.
